DIY vintage file drawer ikea hack

I always love a good Ikea hack. They’re almost always inexpensive and make a huge statement, like this DIY vintage file drawer by The Painted Hive. She made this bad boy from Ikea moppe drawers (only $16), stain, brass pulls, and a little elbow grease. Talk about awesome. Oh, and you can even download a free printable for the old fashioned handwritten labels!

    I would love to have these in my office…

    I cant believe these arent authentic vintage file drawers, great work!

  • Love, love, love… and have I mentioned LOVE? I’m always on the lookout for vintage apothecary drawers but they’re either too expensive or the wood is in bad shape. I’ve seen these Ikea drawers a million times and you’ve shown them in an exciting way. I’m notorious for having a million little knick-knacks and jewelry, so these would make for perfect, stylish storage.

    I love IKEA hacks as well- though I’ll tell you… this is the first one I couldn’t recognize as being an IKEA hack!!! I was looking at it thinking, what does IKEA possible sell that could have such a grain on the wood? Excellent. Must do :)

      I totally agree with you! No one would ever know it was Ikea :)

    Too cool! Where can I find the Moppe though? It does not seem to be for sale on the IKEA US site.

    • Ashley said:

      Hey Kyle! As far as I’m aware, Ikea doesn’t post all of their items to be purchased online, sometimes they can only be bought in stores. Hopefully you live somewhere near an Ikea and can check it out! Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.
